Thanks for writing, Tony! What's your question?

I like posting your reviews on my Facebook wall, Mr. Kirkley. I kinda feel like you enjoy things the same way I do, so they're always a fun read. Thanks.

Thanks, Lee Carey! Yeah, I was gonna say something about that, but you said it better. It was actually just "okay, that was some stalling bullshit, I still I'm trouble".

Those are the coordinates, apparently. Repetitive? Don't hate on the speeches. Did Nine and Ten get guff for them here too?

A very frustrating story in that, if like me you're in the US and half your fan friends are watching two weeks behind, you can't talk about the psychological story because you have to give it all away to do so! So, thanks for being here. I thought again about the "hates me as much as you do" line (nicely making its point only in retrospect) and realized what a basic truth it was. We're certainly not often our best friends, but you still have to realize that, which often comes, for me anyway, from thinking "aloud". Talking or writing to someone, trying to explain a concept or feeling, you suddenly stop and say "....OH! *That's* what it's about!" I think it's why therapists mainly just let you ramble. You've gotta go back through the episode and ".....OH!" It's about Amy, but it's also about how much the other half of our mind likes to fuck us up, and you don't quite get it until you separate it and examine it.

And what was the story that had something hidden in an old throne? I know it was Baker but can't place it. Pyramids Of Mars? But yeah, about halfway through I said "...this is some Tom Baker shit!", which I meant in the best way of course.

Any ideas why everyone was wearing contemporary clothing in a story set in the future? If you were at the South Pole with a bunch of tourists would you try to insult them by using the word "immigrant"? Well, it's certainly telling that Russell wanted you to think about the contemporary UK/US. A bit on the nose, maybe a bit more than a bit, "immigrant" does stick out. I guess you could ask, in response to "I'm a traveller", if he's a gypsy or pikey, but I supoose that'd just be more rude that the contemporary racist paranoia Russell was probably going for. Kind of an awkward line, but I forgive him for how vicious and creepy it got.

Tenth just looked like he was enjoying himself so much...no important mission, no desperate rescue. Exactly! I loved that he was on vacation. I know the feeling that he's off on his own doing something new and interesting. I like traveling alone too, and the cabin's not crowded so he's got room to be comfortable and excited about what he's going to see. I'm not as gregarious by far but I recognized his relaxed enthusiasm. "Whee! It's just me going on my neat little trip!" He plays it so, so well that it's simply tragic how much fun he does NOT have.
